1 Make a Wish List
Starting the home buying process often means deciding what you need, what you want, and what you can comfortably fit in your budget. It helps to make a wish list, ranking your first priority as #1.
Here are some thought-starters to help you create your list:
2 Choose the Right Location
Maybe you're starting the home buying process with Orleans because there's a specific school you want to attend. Maybe you want to shorten your commute. Maybe you want to be near water, your family or golf and recreational opportunities. Or perhaps you're looking for a homesite in a community with lots of amenities.
Here are some things you might put on your "Lotta, lotta lot list."
3 Determine Your Budget
A major question when you start your home search is "How much house can I afford?"
Fortunately, there are formulas that calculate your home buying budget for you in a flash. These formulas take into account how much you make, how much you've saved for your down payment, how much you owe, and what other things you need to save for, such as college and retirement.
